Donnie Yen is (not!) Retiring
Donnie commented that considering his body is not what it used to be, and that he's been shooting action films non stop - just this year, 十月圍城 (Bodyguards and Assassins), 錦衣衛 (14 Blades), and this - the fatigue and pain are starting to seriously take their toll, so he gets the urge to quit every time one shoot ends, energy which comes back right away, after a little rest and some time to recharge his batteries. Seems like it was just something said in the frenzy of the moment.
So the idea is... we might not get a third installment of the Ip Man series, and Donnie might move to slightly less demanding work down the line - next is Andrew Lau's 夜行侠陈真 (The Legend of Chen Zhen) - but he's not leaving us anytime soon. That's your good news of the day...
